Police are asking the public to help locate suspects after a pair of pharmacy robberies north of Brampton last week.

Just before 6:45 p.m. last Wednesday (Nov. 16), the Caledon OPP say officers were called to a pharmacy on McEwan Dr. East in Caledon for reports of a robbery.

Four males entered the establishment demanding narcotics, police say, and one of the suspects flashed part of a pistol during the attempted hold-up.

The suspects left without any property and no injuries were sustained during the attempted robbery.

Police say the suspects are Black or Latin males, approximately 15 to 16 years old. They were wearing black clothing, masks, and gloves at the time of the incident and smelled of cannabis.

Police have also released footage of a vehicle used by the suspects, believed to be a black two-door 2008 or 2009 Honda Civic.

Around the same time just two days later, the Caledon OPP responded to a report of a robbery at a pharmacy in Bolton.

Police say three males entered the pharmacy and made off with a large quantity of narcotics and an unknown amount of cash. No weapons were seen during the robbery and no injuries were reported.

The suspects are described as Black males wearing black clothing with hoods, face masks and purple gloves.

  • Suspect 1: 5′ to 5’3″ and described as looking young
  • Suspect 2: Heavy build and approximately 6′ tall
  • Suspect 3: Cornrow-style hair
